Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Blitz all the Thai paste ingredients together in a blender until you have a smooth paste. Rub this into the chicken thighs.
  3. Arrange the chicken thighs, onion, peppers and sweet potato in an ovenproof dish or roasting pan. Spray lightly with oil and grind some pepper over the top.
  4. Bake in the oven for 35 mins, turning the chicken and vegetables in the pan juices once or twice. Remove from the oven when the chicken is cooked right through and the vegetables are tender.
  5. Divide the chicken and the vegetables between two serving plates and serve immediately with a sprinkling of chopped coriander.
